The Start-of-the-Semester General Faculty Orientation for the Spring 2013 semester is scheduled for Monday, February 18, 2013. The main objective of the orientation is to better equip our faculty with the resources to render quality instruction so that ASA can achieve its mission.

The session for new faculty will start at 12:00 noon and at 2:00pm they will join colleagues from their respective academic divisions for the professional development segment of the orientation. The event will end at 5:30pm when all attendees will share in a festive dinner.

Hopefully every faculty comes away from the orientation feeling confident about his/her responsibilities and invigorated to start the new semester.
